"Clan of the Dark Claw" Kriftos Plu

In life, Kriftos Plu was famed as a calm, cool-headed Septumvirate among the Godslayers. After the terrible events of Zbruch, Kriftos would emerge as an exuberant monster with a flair for the melodramatic. A century of excellent service, that would earn accolades from both his allies and his enemies, would be swiftly replaced by a leering, pox-marked face. It is unknown if Kriftos had hidden this side of him or if it was the result of his transformation. He would be only one of a few that would survive the Tragedy of Zbruch. Where so many Godslayers would be deprived of soul and mind, Kriftos, whether through an act of will or by embracing the hideous powers, retained his intelligence. 

 

Instead of lamenting the fate to befall so many of his comrade, Kriftos dominated and exploited them to form his personal 'clan'. With his new 'family', Kriftos quickly distinguished himself in war for his night sieges. First, probes were launched against enemy forces that would reveal weakspots and spread disease in their wake, opening more opportunities. From there, Kriftos would escalate his periodic assaults, increasing them in size and strength and whittle his opponents as defenders either died beneath undead claws or pulled into away from the light into the hungry darkness. In the final stages of a siege, Kriftos would reveal himself with bombastic cheers and has even been documented delivering monologues to the last survivors. Wielding a blood-and-pus-covered mace, Kriftos would lead a final assault that would doom his last opponents to death or, worse, a new unlife as one of Kriftos' family members. 

 

Unfortunately, while Kriftos has been wounded numerous times, no one managed to slay the laughing champion of the Plague God during the Insurrection or in the Scouring.

 

[Is this good, Blind?]

Judging is complete. 

 

With no other competition, I win the Forgeworld category with 'Clan of the Dark Claw'.

 

Like, Beren wins the Black Library category with 'With Phosphex and with Volkite'.

 

Crimson Lions will feature for July. What do you want to see, Sig?

Damn it, I can't let a second challenge go without contributing something.

IIIrd Legion Despoiler Sergeant
Hradros ap Gedwy
Clan Mycenor, Second ___, Thirty-Second Company, Squad Jundar

Sergeant Hradros is known to have received a field promotion to the rank of sergeant on the outermost world of the Qarith home system, leading his squad through several weeks of punishing warfare on the prime world after that. He showed little inclination to pursue higher rank, but served with distinction to the point that, informally, he was the company’s senior sergeant for several years before the Insurrection. Hradros perished on Han at the height of the fighting there, but not before conducting a grisly purge of several hab-blocks, killing several Warriors of Peace in the process.

Hradros is shown equipped in a manner typical of the IIIrd Legion’s many Despoiler squads, which outnumbered tactical squads in some companies due to the Lions’ preference for close-quarters fighting. Of particular note is his combat shield, which was near-ubiquitous not just among the Lions’ Despoilers, but also their assault and veteran units. While not offering the same degree of protection as the breacher shields that the Halcyon Wardens used just as widely, they were considerably lighter and less cumbersome. Squads such as Gedwy’s were consequently able to improvise shield walls for more aggressive purposes than their kin, often using them to break enemy lines.

Due to how little how was accomplished (and how busy everyone is), the Crimson Lions are being given a second month, barring extraordinary protest.

I might have a (very short) thing to throw in, got an idea in my head.

The Ó thuaidh System

Nicknamed ‘the Northern Star’ within the Doinion, this system forms the most Northern point of the Dominion’s borders. Several dozen light-years north of the infamous Cadia, the Ó thuaidh was home to several agri-worlds, including an unusual ice variant, Talamfer.

Talamfer seemed ill-suited as a system capital, however the other worlds featured humanity living in pre-industrial situations. Although claimed by Hectarion, he decided against forcing a technological revolution on the occupied, while Talamfer, which had been barren of human life before, would host the Imperium’s presence and technological advancements as it doubled as a major exporter of ice and water to other Imperial systems.

For decades, this peaceful arrangement held. What broke it would not come to the Imperium’s attention until far after the fact. Late in the Great Crusade, several Eagle Warrior minor fleets would pass through the system. Each visit was followed by a brief increase in complaints from the worlds’ more superstitious folk and claims of missing persons.

Unfortunately, given the lack of technology, it is impossible to ascertain how many of these missing cases were due to the Eagle Warriors foul machinations or to the everyday struggles of pre-industrial life. It was these same handicaps that would prevent the local Lions commander from action. Although suspicious of the Eagle Warriors, not enough evidence was available to send word higher and he lacked the authority to bar the Eagle Warriors from future visits.

It would only be well after the Scouring would a scant few of these missing person be rediscovered, though none whole in mind, body, or soul...
